No beer for a year
Going sober for one year to raise awareness around the dangers of binge drinking, and money for several charities.Auckland
I am usually not one to speak up or get political, but I have decided that it is time for me to try make a difference. Everyone that knows me knows that I love a good beer or 12, which goes for a lot of people in New Zealand. This is the issue that I am addressing, New Zealand's binge drinking and substance abuse culture. It is hard to avoid nowadays. One drink always turns into a box, a night out always turns into a three day bender and "I'll just try it once" always turns into addiction. It has gotten so bad that the definition of alcoholism in this country is practically a joke.
In order to raise awareness around this issue I will be going sober for one year from today, until 23/07/2021. I know this will be hard and I may compromise some relationships because of it, but I want this issue to be talked about as well as prove to myself that I can do it. The charities the funds will go to are the Salvation Army, Gumboot Friday and White Ribbon New Zealand.
